Event Description

Join Claire Warden from Scotland and Paul Roberts for this full day workshop on that' puts children at the center of learning.  This is a hands on session and uses a Claire's amazing Consulting with Children approach, and material from her book: Talking and Thinking Floorbooks.

This approach allows children to follow their passions which drive learning deeper, develops their minds and significantly reduces disruptive behaviors. The teacher becomes an important part of this learning as facilitator of learning. 

Consultation with children is important because:
• It creates a closer match between the child and the curriculum it is experiencing.

• It builds self esteem and positive attitudes when the learner is involved in the decision making.

• It increases intrinsic motivation, that stays with a child throughout life.
